Blackrock Mountain, Hearthstone's second Adventure, will be released on Thursday April 2nd. The news was announced on the game's official website last night.

"Are you brave (or insane) enough to face the ancient evils lurking within Blackrock Mountain?" the announcement begins.

"Soon the fabled mountain will open, allowing adventurers the opportunity to journey inside and conquer fiery elementals, fierce dragons, and other hot-tempered foes!"

Blackrock Mountain introduces 31 new cards that are too hot to handle, all obtained by emerging victorious in epic battles against some of the mountain's most iconic villains. Throughout the course of this Adventure, you'll harness the power of some of Azeroth's mightiest denizens and unlock powerful new synergies through a whole flight of Dragon-type minion cards.

"You'll also get an all-new game board, new music, and a host of legendary encounters-plus, each of Hearthstone's nine classes will have the opportunity to add two brand-new class cards to their collection."

Blackrock Mountain will be made simultaneously available for Windows, Mac, iPad and Android tablets. The US will receive the new content on April 2nd, while the EU and the rest of the world will be able to get stuck into the Adventure the following day.

If you're hoping to get your hands on that exclusive card back for pre-ordering Blackrock Mountain, you'll need to make the purchase before the content is released next Thursday.
